Inuit Art in Rankin Inlet

Rankin Inlet sculptors work with hard grey stone as well as black 'Keewatin' stone, as well as ivory and in ceramics. Like Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet is a regional centre with varied art styles.

George Arlook - John Tiktak: Two Artists in Rankin Inlet

George Arlook is an artist who has lived in several Keewatin communities. His Rankin Inlet work shows the minimalist influence of several sculptors, particularly John Tiktak; Tiktak turned to sculpture in earnest after a mining accident at the Rankin Inlet Mine in 1959. Tiktak is widely admired for his sculptural representations of the human form and face, in which organic shapes and hollow openings have often led to comparisons with the sculptures of Henry Moore.
